I keep on working on the Craftsy BOM blocks and I'm in the month of April which is English paper piecing month. In my last post I stated my own method for that, the result will be pretty much the same anyway. Except! The original block was supposed to be the way the hexagons were arranged in a column on a plain white background.
Below is a picture:
I thought it's really pretty. But to me a bit boring... So I thought I'd try to find another way to arrange the hexies I made. I came up with an idea of shaping them into a letter. I'm making this quilt for my friend's grand baby who's name is Dominik so I tried to arrange them into a "D" shape.
Does this look like a "D"? That's the question!
I'd sew it on a white background as it was supposed to be originally, but first I'd like some feedback, what do you think? Is it OK for a letter D or should I figure out something else? My other idea was to form a triangle if I made 2 more. Thoughts anyone? Your opinion is very much appreciated! Did I mention I'm a terrible decision maker? Yeah! That! :) Please help meeeee! :)
'Til we blog again! :)
To be honest, doesn't really look like a D to my eye. Google hexagon graph paper, I found a good one at www.printablepaper.net, but there are others. Great to use when you are planning something with hexes. Hope this helpsReplyDelete
I saw the D, but I also see dead people... ;D jk, lol!ReplyDelete
We plan that this will be a white blanket hexagons, D?ReplyDelete
Good idea, I like it, but I have a D in the form of textiles and sewing, you will surely see the monogram.
I also really like the hexagon!
I decide I'm too hard.: (

Köszönöm a válaszodat!
Megnézem ezt a linket,amit kaptál,mert izgatja a fantáziámat a nagyiblokk.:)Én csak így hívom a hexagont.
